When I start my 2006 Jeep Commander and put it into drive or reverse and step on the gas its always hit or miss if the car is going to move. The engine will usually rev for a second and then finally go. Once it has starting moving in drive, every time it shifts from first to second there is a loud clicking noise. Took it to the dealership and they told me it has to get worse before they fix it. That doesn't sound right to me.
My friend has this vehical and she has only had two issues with it and one being a sensor in the shifter, the other the ac blower motor. Her Jeep now has 140,000. That may be something you have checked out. I agree that doesnt sound rite.
